COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
St. George Oktoberfest is a classic German style with roasted malt and caramel flavors balanced by a mild hop bitterness. This beer was traditionally served at the start of fall in celebration of the harvests. Our Oktoberfest is pale copper-color lager. It pairs well with warm pretzels and lederhosen.

UPDATED: JAN 23, 2014 I really like this Oktoberfest. Nice clean amber look with a good head. The roasted malt and caramel smell great, like a fresh homebrew. Taste is toasted malt and light hops, balanced, some bitter, and not to heavy like other Oktoberfest beers. Available year around at the brewery and at Busch Gardens Williamsburg.

On tap @ 11th Street Taphouse, Virginia Beach Va-Copper pour w/a slight tan head. Malty aroma. Flavors of malt, toffee, caramel, nuts, pretty standard Oktoberfest, Very true to style, smooth & easy to drink. Had it on a cool, rainy late summer night @ the beach & it hit the spot, wound up the season well & made me look forward to the Fall.

Reviewed from notes. I had this during a work trip in the Virginia area last Autumn. The appearance was a nice light gentle amber color with a decent transparency about it letting in enough light to see some carbonation rising at a decent pace. The head was about a finger’s worth and gently died to a slight little hill in the center of the beer. Some light lacing stuck around the sides of the glass. The smell had a good amount of caramel malts along with some pilsner malts invading my nose. The taste was basically sweet around the caramel and pilsner malts. On the palate, it sat fairly light and displayed a decent sessionable quality running about it. The carbonation was somewhat smooth and watery. Overall, for the most part, this was a pretty good brew that I ended up having several of and had it with some pretzels. It made for a nice memorable Autumn afternoon watching football.

Pours a very clear amber with small tight carbonation bubbles and a nice off-white head that stays around and laces as the beer disappears. Smells malty with some caramel and some breadiness, along with a hint of spicey hops. Medium body, good carbonation, and a somewhat bitter finish and dry. Tastes nicely malty, sweet malts and some bread with hints of spicey hops. Dry in the finish

DocLock (7861) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 18, 2012
Draft at Fest Haus at Busch Gardesn Williamsburg. Poured translucent copper with minimal off-white head that disspiated quickly. Nose was earthy caramel malt, mild nutmeg, toffee, and hops. Tasted smooth, malty, earthy, with notes of brown sugar, hops, and offee, but not sweet. Rich and very enjoyable on a 90 degree day in Williamsburg.
